I've seen that we can use MS Word to create new Blog posts. The option is available under Blog Tools > Launch blog program to post

Works fine, word opens with Blog kind of template, and I can publish But after the blog article is published, how do I edit the blog post using word again?

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Hi Toni! Looks like the link you provided is broken. Can you fix it and possibly extend your answer, since as of now this doesn't help much. Thank You! – Benny Skogberg Aug 20 '14 at 16:38

I'd recommend using Windows Live Writer (WLW) rather than Word for editing blog posts. Word is really overkill and not specifically designed for blogs like WLW is.

WLW is a free download from Microsoft:

Using Word 2010

  1. I went through the actions to create a new blog post to get to the Blog UI
  2. Use the "open existing" command
  3. Make edits and "publish" as usual
